Special Issue "Molecules from Multicomponent Reactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2019
Prof. Dr. Luke R. Odell
This Special Issue is devoted to the fascinating topic of multicomponent reactions (MCRs). These reactions are a group of powerful and highly convergent chemical transformations capable of generating enormous structural diversity by reacting three or more starting materials simultaneously. These reactions utilize subtle differences in reactivity between various functional groups to allow a predictable series of reactions to occur in the same vessel, leading to the formation of the desired product. Furthermore, the product incorporates the vast majority of atoms from all starting materials in its framework, making MCRs inherently efficient and sustainable processes. There has been a tremendous amount of interest in MCRs over the last few decades and, as the demands for new and sustainable materials and medicines continue to increase, the topic will undoubtedly remain a focal point for synthetic chemists around the world.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molbank is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
